Season 2 of Call of Duty: Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2 is just around the corner, releasing tomorrow, Feb. 15 for all players. As with any new season, there are several weapons for players to unlock and start leveling up for use in either multiplayer or battle royale. One of the weapons coming at the start of Season 2 is the ISO Hemlock, which appears to be a remastered version of the ACR assault rifle.
The ISO Hemlock will likely be the most popular weapon right out of the gate due to its resemblance to the ACR. The ACR is a classic AR in Call of Duty that was a major part of the original MW2 in 2009. While it remains to be seen whether the ISO Hemlock will be as strong as the previous versions of the ACR, players will still want to unlock it quickly in MW2 and Warzone 2 regardless.
For a full guide on how to unlock the ISO Hemlock, keep reading below.
Unlock the ISO Hemlock in MW2 and Warzone 2
The ISO Hemlock will be a featured weapon on the Season 2 Battle Pass in MW2 and Warzone 2. This means that players need to progress their Battle Pass if they want to unlock this assault rifle. Luckily, the ISO Hemlock will be a free tier on the Battle Pass, meaning players can progress towards it even if they don’t purchase the premium version of the pass.
If Season 1 is any indication, then players will likely be able to unlock the ISO Hemlock at around 25-30 tiers deep in the Battle Pass. Season 1’s Battle Pass had both weapons five or six blocks away from the start, meaning players need to use roughly 30 Battle Pass Tokens to get to either weapon. If you want the ISO Hemlock first in MW2 and Warzone 2, then head straight for its tier on the Battle Pass with no deviations.
You can earn Battle Pass Tokens through playtime, but you can also purchase them for real money if you want to truly expedite the unlock process. Season 2 of MW2 and Warzone 2 releases at 1 pm ET on Wednesday, Feb. 15.
